Everyone laughs at deeply chaotic Golden Globes tweets
Did you know the Golden Globes are on Sunday? It’s true.
You are forgiven for not realizing it given the wealth of other better things to watch last night including the return of The right gems, Yellow jackets, and a very exciting football game. It’s not like you could’ve watched the Globes anyway – there wasn’t a televised ceremony due to the pandemic, or even a live broadcast with famous people on Zoom. The winners were announced on Twitter, which surely even the controversial Hollywood Foreign Press Association couldn’t have missed.
They screwed him up.
that of Steven Spielberg West Side Story won the award for best film – musical or comedy. Here’s how the Globes made the announcement: “If laughter is the best medicine, [West Side Story] is the remedy for that which afflicts you. This tweet has the middle finger “tell me you haven’t seen West Side Story without saying that you haven’t seen West Side Story“Energy. The Globes then deleted and updated the tweet (“the laughter” was replaced by “the music”) and made fun of themselves for the [Succession voice] bad tweet using a GIF from Hugh Laurie saying “Thanks, obviously this is a terrible confusion”, but there was more chaos elsewhere.
Even the Golden Globes tweet-bot is drunk and corrupt, you need to respect brand consistency

I literally had a complete mental collapse that they just turned laughter into music. I can’t catch my breath. Is it an anxiety attack? https://t.co/8BFlT72wmH

As embarrassing as things have been for the Golden Globes and the HFPA, I have to hand it over to them for somehow amplifying the embarrassment further thanks to their weird Twitter thread tonight.
